Sunday Meal Plan – Week 17

Happy HAPPY Sunday to YOU!


Man! It has been an amazing weekend, full of LOADS of outdoor activities and we still have another day left. The weather in WNY has been mind-blowing! I know we’ve had quite a bit of rain AND some cooler days, but honestly, I’ll take all that if we keep having weekends like we’ve had over the past several weeks. Warm, and sun that doesn’t seem to end! Just plain lovely! 🙂

Yesterday, we went out to the playground early. Emmett had a blast swinging, sliding and playing on the little plastic cars they had sitting out. And because he was well rested, he was listening very well too. (Always awesome!) He’d start riding too far away, I’d ask him to turn around and he would. It made me feel so good, knowing he’s such a good listener (so long as he isn’t tired or cranky).

The rest of the day was spent with a big nap (for everyone), then we ran some errands, grabbed a quick dinner at The Corner Bakery, and then home to start watching How to Train Your Dragon. Emmett was loving it! He kept saying, “Oh no!” or cheering, it was very adorable.

Today, I met up with a good friend and we went for a nice long walk. It felt amazing! Emmett got a little feisty, being trapped in the stroller for that long, but eventually he gave up and fell asleep. We walked about 6 miles, and other than some friction from crappy sneakers, I felt good. No pain! I need to keep this body active, so that I continue to keep the herniated disc pain at bay.

My little cutie is sleeping now, but once he’s up, we’re headed to a playground, while Seamus runs and then will eventually head home for dinner (Teriyaki Salmon, YUM!).

Tomorrow will be another great day!! We’re headed down to visit my parents, for a small picnic. Emmett’s been asking to see grandma and grandpa, so we’re finally obliging him. I love visiting my parents because their yard is so big, and very private – Emmett will be able to run and get all his energy out. 🙂

Oh yeah! You probably want my meal plan, the reason you stopped by.

Sunday: Teriyaki Salmon and Corn on the Cobb

Monday: Hamburgers/Hot Dogs on the grill at my parent’s house

Tuesday: Tacos with this guacamole recipe. (yum!)


Wednesday: GF Spaghetti and Meatballs

Thursday: Grilled Chicken & Veggies

Friday: Homemade Pizza

Saturday: Scrounge or Out

I’m excited for this week! It’s shaping up to be a beautiful one weather-wise, and I cannot wait to get Emmett out as much as possible, so that he can enjoy it!

I’m linking up with Laura from Mommy, Run Fast! and Jill from

Your turn!

What’s on your Sunday Meal Plan for the week?

    I could eat tacos with guac anytime and never get tired of eating it 🙂

    I’m loving the weather! Perfect for running!

  2. Nice that you’ve been having great weather! It’s been really nice here too, though we had a few sprinkles this weekend! Little Emmett seems like such a sweetie! Enjoy your meals this week.

    Garlic guacamole sounds awesome! I really need to get some more avocados 🙂

    My son (20 months) tends to be the same way with listening – he usually does a pretty good job, but if he is tired, then I get ignored. We’ve even seen the belly flop temper tantrum a few times, but luckily those were at home and not out and about.

      OMG! Yuliya! The belly flop tantrum is the worst. The first time it happened with Emmett, I was kind of shocked & couldn’t believe it had happened. Needless to say, I work hard to make sure that he’s fed and rested when we go out, so we can avoid it happening in public. Thank you for visiting!

    Stopping in from the Weekday Mixer and love your Guacamole above, yummy!!!! I need to get better at mapping up my meals for the week. Thanks for motivating me, it’d be so much easier if I thought it out in advance 🙂

      Howdy Heather! I’m telling you, making a menu weekly has helped with our grocery budget and helped me with shopping. I no longer go in and frustrated because I have no idea what to buy.

    This sounds like a fantastic weekend 🙂
    Your meal plan sounds SO YUMMY! I would love teriyaki salmon…. right now!
    I hope you and your family had a lovely holiday.

      Teriyaki salmon is so so good! I should find the recipe we use and share it. It’s from…Maybe I’ll do that the next time we make it. Thanks for visiting!!
